OMG YOU GUYS. This bag? That I neglected to buy for $199 during a Kate Spade online sample sale in December 2010 and have whined about ever since? (See, e.g., here)
IT IS NOW MINE!! MUAHAHAHAHAHA.
A thoughtful and timely text message from my friend Michelle alerted me to the fact that my bag was on sale. I immediately presumed she meant on eBay, where I did indeed see two newly-listed All Typed Up Clydes for the low low price of...$600 BIN, OBO. Sigh. I contemplated making an offer at $350 or $400 as I went down to the office gym to shower.
When I returned to my phone, I saw these fateful words: "Kate Spade surprise sale."
And sure enough, there it was. My typewriter bag. From 2010. For $229. I could not submit my order fast enough. (Seriously, I may have yelled at the computer while the pages loaded.)
Kate Spade, if you cancel my order due to some mistake in my inventory I swear I will cut you. I will cut you.
